Re: New Ed Brown Special Forces 1911...
Berto, I understand and agree totally with your position; accuracy is nice, but the gun first must 'run', 100%; From all I see and hear, Ed Brown's guns do both!
What they would do, in the 'sandbox' that is Iraq, under low maintainance conditions, and full of sand, is another question, entirely!
I build the few pistols I do, for 100% function, regardless of environment, with a 500 rd take down interval, for maintainance, and rework any that won't 'do the deal', for free; most are 3", or less, guns, @ 50!
But, the first rule is, the gun must run, regardless of conditions.
Ed Brown seems to harbor the same feelings; all that I have seen of his work is reliability first, accuracy next, product!
Don't start no s**t and there won't be none, Terry
